Einstein ("too clever for words"), Zo Wanamaker, Benjamin Zephaniah and Richard Rogers are in the National Literacy Association's hall of fame for high achievers who have succeeded despite dyslexia. A set of 12 glossy A3 posters based on classy black and white portrait photographs of famous people with dyslexia is produced by the NLA and the British Dyslexia Association. These are available for the cost of pp and handling: pound;3 for a full set, pound;5 for four sets and bigger orders by agreement.

Check them out first at, then order by phone on 0121 622 5143 (the online ordering facility is currently being reconstructed). The NLA will also send out individual posters.
